Fear is a Liar

    The first one is Icespikes . Maybe I won't use them this year, but living in Eastern Pa will surely have it's days

     

    The second is RoadID. I hope to never use this where ever I live. But truthfully I can run with peace of mind - just in case. It will replace the 3 year old crumpled scrap of paper with my name and my wife's phone number. Some thing to think about.

    I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

      I did not end up getting the ice spikes last week but plan to.  Or, maybe some of these unobservant people in my life will get them for me...not that that would ever happen...

       

      So riddle me this Batman; do you run back home to get your road ID after you realize you forgot it a half mile into your run?

        There was an article today about a John Doe found in Prospect Park - they finally were able to ID him, but it took a week.  Sad

         

        Hopefully you don't "need" either of them, but good to have just in case.

        60 Day DL

          I always keep my insurance card in my Spibelt and I tape ICE phone numbers to the back.

            Never run without my RoadID, even on the treadmill (j/k).

            Seriously, when I got it, I proudly told DW about it figuring she would think I was all responsible and whatnot. Instead, she got all panicky and said "why, do you think something's going to happen??"

              Gustav- that is SMART to have a RoadID. A local story that was a wakeup call for me to NEVER EVER EVER run without one:

               

              A few days ago a man was running in a park by my apartment that I often run in, and he collapsed during his run and passed out. He had no form of ID on him. It took days to find out who he was while he was in the hospital. He ended up dying Sad

                I didn't read this before responding to this post regarding the same story. He ended up dying Sad SO SAD. I run in that park often, so it hit literally close to home for me.

                    Yeah I've read that one. The story was widely circulated by all the local running things (running stores, race organizations, ect) I follow on social media and get emails from, as well as by my friends who live in Brooklyn. So sad.

                        I have a couple different color wrist bands and change them out occasionally. Even good to have while working out at the gym.

                          Bad Ass

                            I love my Road ID.  I don't carry anything else during my runs so I am glad to have it just in case.

                             

                            Now if I can only find it, I can wear it again.  Those damn cats.

                              I wear my RoadID every day.  Pretty much all the time.

                              ***************************************************************************************

                               

                              "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.


                              Will run for scenery.

                                Anybody know if RoadID works on trails ?  

                                 

                                I don't know any trails short enough to run on ATM, but someday I'd like to get back up in the double digits. Or at the plurals.
